Un brownies liquide avec un glaçage à la vanille et des notes de petits fruits. Le corps soyeux et velouté des eclipse y est encore une fois.

This is a surprisingly fantastic beer. Really rich and heavy in cocoa, vanilla, oak, coffee, and just enough sweetness. Quite sweet in a good way and really great.

Ataraxia (371) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Ink black, thin beige lacing. A bit hot on the nose, strong bourbon aroma, bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar, coffee grounds, vanilla, sweet raisins, and charred oak. Blend of honey sweetness and bourbon bitterness. Full-bodied, fairly viscous, but just a bit too much carbonation. Finish is warming from the booze and a little bitter.

"extra" @ cascade + upright tasting sessions - thanks pocketfullofaces-bro-dave. pours very dark brown with a small light beige head, some retention and lacing. burnt caramel, coconut - not over whelming though, molasses, demerara, chocolate, light smoky notes, spices, other woodsy and vanilla toasted oak notes. moderate carbonation, medium body - very oily and silky, sweet and cloying finish. nice.

mR_fr0g (3170) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle at gbbf 2013. Opaque black caramel with loose tan head. Nose is big choc roast booze. More of the same in the flavour with some liquorice. Pretty big alcohol presence. Big bold stout. Very nice.

mathieuc (1343) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours pitch black with a thin moka head that doesn’t leave much lacing. Aroma is of green hops, bourbon. Taste is quite sweet but the roasted malt and alcohol/bourbon do a good job to make it all balanced out. Flavors of coffee, chocolate and booze working in almost perfect harmony. Body is full and heavy but still really drinkable. A nice change of pace in a sour/wild tasting!

caesar (5182) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Bottled @ gbbf, batch br2 2012 purple wax, medium sample. Dark color, medium brown head. Aroma of biscuit, bourbon, roasted malts, chocolate, hint of coffee. Honey is gone in aroma. In taste its quite heavy on bourbon, bit boozy even. Still base beer is present.
